Ferrous Sulphate
Formula: FeSO4

Physical Description:

Green/brown crystals.

Uses:
Ferrous sulphate heptahydrate is a source of Iron. It is commonly used in turf culture as a moss killing agent. Iron deficiency in pasture & crops is rare - where there is a deficiency it is usually related to low pH and poor drainage - most deficiencies are rectified by addressing these problems rather than by addition of Iron. Occasionally used as a soil acidifying agent. Ferrous Sulphate is water soluble - it can be sprayed onto marginally deficient crops if necessary.

This trace element is approved by Bio-Gro and Certenz for restricted use, thus written permission is required before use.
